Congratulations to all on this recently published paper in the journal Microbiome, from BioBE co-authors James Meadow & Ashley Bateman, with collaborators Rachel Adams & Holly Bik. This project was born during a 2013 NESCent Catalysis Meeting on “Evolution in the Indoor Biome”. Hoping to address broad-scale ecological questions with as many high-throughput sequencing datasets as possible, the published manuscript describes several significant technical and biological findings. See this microbenet post for a summary of the most important results.
Several Sloan funded groups working in the built environment had a great video conference session on bioaerosol sampling methods. You can check out the session recording on youtube.
Look for another session coming up on surface swabbing methods.
